People’s Map Wins Silver Award

March 15, 2010 -- The People’s Map of London received a Silver Award in the Best Digital Product category at the recent International Map Trade Association (IMTA) Gala Awards Dinner. The annual awards ceremony, part of a two day conference held in Bayonne, France, attracted entries from all over Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The awards were presented by Allen Carroll, President of Cartography for National Geographic, whilst other guests came from as far as Australia and the Dominican Republic to see the latest mapping developments.

Over 40 entries were received for the three different award categories being awarded, Best Wall Map, Best Book or Atlas and Best Digital Product, with an overall winner going forward to the World Best Map at the IMTA Global event later this year.

The People’s Map received the highly commended silver award for its 1:12,000 scale mapping of Central London which was launched in November 2009. Covering over 400 sq km stretching from Richmond Park in the South West to Epping Forest in the North East the mapping was derived from high resolution aerial photography captured by Getmapping. A number of businesses and private individuals used the simple online editing tools to create the mapping. All data was then verified and rendered by mapping experts XYZ prior to publication.

“There were numerous mapping products of a high quality in the Best Digital Product category, so to walk away with a silver award is fantastic, and it really highlights the high quality mapping we are able to deliver using the People’s Map process,” said Dr Tim Rideout, Director of the People’s Map partnership who was there to pick up the award.

The People’s Map is already available for the whole of the UK at 1:1,000,000 scale with the 1:100,000 scale map currently in production. 1:12,000 scale street mapping is also available for Birmingham, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Bath, as well as other cities in progress such as Bournemouth, Brighton, Cardiff, Portsmouth, Southampton, Coventry and Milton Keynes. The People’s Map of London can be purchased from www.getmapping.com.
